Re: Avada Kedavra!'s Song History

Game 126 - Music As Therapy


Song Entered

Middle
DJ Snake ft. Bopolar Sunshine


Reviews
  • Slazorin - Planned to send it for the Party game but chose something else. Most likely my 12.
  • Beat - not including his review for this song because it pissed me off so much and is utter bullshit

Semi-Final Result

Middle was put in SF#2. It finished 13th of its SF with a total of 81 points.

Points Breakdown:
  • 12 Points (3) : Matmagix, Mauriac, Slazorin
  • 10 Points (2) : King Wally., zvonarevarulz
  • 8 Points (0) *]7 Points (2) : Darth Revan, Silent Bird.
  • 6 Points (1) : zvonarevarulz
  • 5 Points (0) :
  • 4 Points (1) : Litotes
  • 3 Points (2) : N.M, Tennisfan102
  • 2 Points (0)
  • 1 Point (1) : SilverPersian

Why did I send it for this theme? I find the EDM part of the song very therapeutic, I don't what it is about it but it's so relaxing
ANOTHER MASTERPIECE FROM 2016 TBH

Game 128 - Dearly Departed V3


Song Entered

Ain't That Peculiar
Marvin Gaye


Reviews
  • ArthurJFC - 8/10
  • Wally - Very soulful, as one would expect. I also love how wonderfully upbeat this is. There’s a lot of joy packed in here. You just want to sing and dance along.
  • floki - 2 (not okay) --> Not my thing
  • Hughes Daniel - fine hit from Marvin in the sixties. It was not long before "Heard it through the grapevine" if I recall well. I like the break, the groove, the musicianship, the tune. Tasty stuff. 4/5.

Semi-Final Result

Ain't That Peculiar was put in SF#1. It finished 5th of its SF with a total of 133 points, thus qualifying for the final

Points Breakdown:
  • 12 Points (1) : Fufu
  • 10 Points (1) : Hughes Daniel
  • 8 Points (2) : wayitis, zvonarevarulz
  • 7 Points (2) : John., TIEFSEE
  • 6 Points (6) : Silent Bird, SilverPersian, N.M, Monzanator, Mauriac, Litotes
  • 5 Points (3) : JMG, King Wally, Slazorin
  • 4 Points (3) : Shvedbarilescu, Northstar, salmon pants.
  • 3 Points (3) : ArthurJFC, big_banana, histery,
  • 2 Points (3) : AdeyC, Perun, resident_bizarre
  • 1 Point (3) : Matmagix, Owl_on_speed, paulxx23

Final Result

Ain't That Peculiar qualified for the final where it placed, 15th with a total of 77 points.

Points Breakdown:
  • 12 Points (0) *]10 Points (0) *]8 Points (1) : Litotes
  • 7 Points (2) : zvonarevarulz, Tennisfan102
  • 6 Points (1) : fufu
  • 5 Points (6) : Monzanator, N.M, Princess-GIORGI, John., wayitis, Hughes Daniel
  • 4 Points (0) : Mauriac.
  • 3 Points (4) : King Wally., Shvedbarilescu, Silent Bird, SilverPersian
  • 2 Points (0) :
  • 1 Point (1) : salmon pants., paulxx23, TIEFSEE

Only FOUR people who didn't vote for my song in the semifinals But it seems as though it was a 'middle' song for most people meaning that it only got the average points from people. This was made clearer when it dropped from 5th --> 15th, with no 12s or 10s.

Re: Avada Kedavra!'s Song History

Game 129 - Drunk Star


Song Entered

She Wolf (Falling To Pieces)
David Guetta ft. Sia


Reviews
  • Owl-on-speed - Although I never listen to this kind of music I like hearing it in the club. Golden collaboration, Guettaís uplifting beats and Siaís beautiful voice.
  • floki - 1 (Budweiser - colored water) --> No Sia song will ever get my points.
  • Silent Bird - This is so great. I'm serious. It's a dancefloor killer. Being drunk is required as it's not rhytmic enough without a little digestible help. All the awkward moments I had to this song in the club... I miss my friend.
  • ME - 9.5/10
    Sia and David Guetta collaborations give me life. First Titanium and now this There probably isn't one Sia or one DG song that I wouldn't enjoy listening to.

Semi-Final Result

She Wolf was put in SF#2. It finished 13th of its SF with a total of 86 points.

Points Breakdown:
  • 12 Points (3) : Litotes, salmon pants., Slazorin
  • 10 Points (2) :
  • 8 Points (0) : Silent Bird, John.
  • 7 Points (2) : SilverPersian
  • 6 Points (1) : Mauriac
  • 5 Points (0) :
  • 4 Points (1) : zvonarevarulz, Owl-on-speed, Cesare Borgia, Fufu
  • 3 Points (2) :
  • 2 Points (0)
  • 1 Point (1) : drg, JMG, Wally, N.M, TIEFSEE

GREAT SONG Sia and David Guetta together are a deadly combo. First Titanium and now this Shame BSG is too old to appreciate EDM Sia is under-appreciated here also

It does look like I'm the only one of the "oldies" who really appreciate the hits of today. This one is very good indeed.

Re: Avada Kedavra!'s Song History

Game 150 - Third Anniversary


Song Entered
Basic Space
The xx


Reviews
  • Leif - I have not really gotten into The xx, but Basic Space is definitely a song that can change that
  • Wally - I'm glad the xx song made the final. I hope it wins! Oliver is so sexy and Romy is so magical.
  • floki - 3/5
  • Randy -So close yet so far. The xx has so many better songs. Will probably get points from me with the shitfest this semi is turning out to be. best of the first 5. but thats sadly like being the smartest member of a hate group
  • big_banana -
  • SilverPersian - ★Ĺ
    Iím not sure what it is, exactly, but whenever I hear a song by The xx, my face starts bleeding profusely out of boredom. The regularity of this experience means Iím not in a very good position to fairly assess the quality of their music. I will just say that I donít enjoy this song much and leave it at that. Sorry I quite like the guitar solo outro.
  • ^bibi^/dogwonder24 - Total Rating: 13,5/20
    OK - Weird Start - grower - uhhh - odd - hypnotizing
    While listening to that song, we would stare blankly at something, not talking
  • HughesDaniel - I have nothing against minimalism, but their neurasthenic singing, Jesus Christ... the song isn't bad

Semi-Final Result

Basic Space was put in SF#1. It finished 6th of its SF with a total of 137.

Points Breakdown:
  • 12 Points (3) : eck, Thanos, zvonarevarulz
  • 10 Points (4) : Adam, Leif, Serena-rules-no1, Wally.
  • 8 Points (1) : Punky
  • 7 Points (4) : histery, Milan., Randy, The Crow
  • 6 Points (1) : Perun
  • 5 Points (0) *]4 Points (2) : drg, salmon pants.
  • 3 Points (3) : Coco Hero, John., ServiceGagnant
  • 2 Points (1) : ^bibi^
  • 1 Point (0) :

Final Result

It finished 19th in the Final with a total of 86.

Points Breakdown:
  • 12 Points (0) :
  • 10 Points (3) : Leif, Punky, zvonarevarulz
  • 8 Points (0) *]7 Points (2) : drg, ServiceGagnant
  • 6 Points (1) : N.M
  • 5 Points (4) : The Crow, Thanos, Lord Choc Ice, salmon pants.

  • 3 Points (0) :
  • 2 Points (4) : Perun, John., ^bibi^, owl-on-speed
  • 1 Point (4) : Slazorin, Mauriac, TIEFSEE, G&R,

The xx is one of the artists which I like which I can rely on to make the final each time Every other time, if it's something I really like, there's 95% it'll be eliminated in the SF.Whilst some people find the xx boring, most of the time I can tantalised by their songs. Whilst this isn't my favourite song of theirs, it is up there

Re: Avada Kedavra!'s Song History

Game 151 - Declare Independence


Song Entered
Ya Rabba
Kailash Kher


Reviews
  • Matmagix - not bad, soulful and gentle this one surprised me and got better as it went on, quite melancholy yet with an optimistic spirit.
  • Silent Bird - An experienced ear can totally hear when people are being disingenuous (or simply lack enough singing talent).
    But the boring singing is not the main problem, I take issue with the lazy fusion here, every single instrument sounds synthetic and cheesy.

Semi-Final Result

Ya Rabba was put in SF#2. It finished 12th of its SF with a total of 76.

Points Breakdown:
  • 12 Points (3) : Litotes, Randy, SilverPersian
  • 10 Points (1) : Slazorin
  • 8 Points (1) : John.
  • 7 Points (2) : AdeyC, Matmagix
  • 6 Points (1) : Tennisfan102
  • 5 Points (0) *]4 Points (0) :
  • 3 Points (0) :
  • 2 Points (1) : fufu
  • 1 Point (0) :

Only nine people who gave this any points This song and Bollywood is very underappreciated here, just the way it is I guess. The instrumental parts of this song alone should've been enough to get into the final, add that with the sufi and this song is gold

Re: Avada Kedavra!'s Song History

Game 152 - Me Against The Music


Song Entered
In The Name of Love
Martin Garrix & Bebe Rexha


Reviews
  • Javiz - 4/5
  • JMG - Don't like the voice, not the good kind of trash 3/10
  • Queen Vika -2016 was the year of finding the most annoying noise possible, and the chorus and Bebe Rexha take the cake. Remember when i said i like it when Sia shows no restraint? That doesn't apply to Bebe Rexha. Martin Garrix is such a bottom and i would fuck him, but because Bebe Rexha is blonde, has big boobies and a woman, we gotta focus on her. Honestly i think Garrix peaked too early with "Animals", now he won't win a slam.
  • Adam
    - + I like the fact the song doesn't have a traditional David Guetta-esque chorus. I also like the production because it reminds me of Flume, ODESZA and Cashmere Cat, which is a surprise given how much of a Guetta clone Martin Garrix is.
    - The market is saturated for radio friendly EDM (Calvin Harris, Chainsmokers) and this is one of those songs because it doesn't stand out from the rest and neither does the singer, who sounds a lot like an imitation Ellie Goulding. I'll still give it points because of the production.

Semi-Final Result

In The Name of Love was put in SF#1. It finished 13th of its SF with a total of 71.

Points Breakdown:
  • 12 Points (1) : Randy
  • 10 Points (2) : salmon pants., Thanos
  • 8 Points (2) : Slazorin, drg
  • 7 Points (0) :
  • 6 Points (0) *]5 Points (1) : zvonarevarulz
  • 4 Points (1) : TennisFan102
  • 3 Points (3) : eck, fufu, Adam
  • 2 Points (2) : AdeyC, Queen Vika
  • 1 Point (1) : John.

Great song but because it's EDM, there's no way it would've done well here

Love this collab. I do like Bebe Rexha as a singer but I feel she wonít get too successful as a solo artist but will continue to do well as a featuring artist in collaborations, e.g. here, My, Myself & I and her collab with Nicki Minaj. Martin Garrix is a great DJ I feel and did great with this song. EDM with strong vocals is my thing so I love this
